Weekend Wrap Up

Hey lovelies! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I am happy to report that everyone is now healthy in this house! Goodness last week drove me nuts with germs and what not. I was a lysoling mean machine! Let's get to the weekend shall we? 

Friday Todd brought pizza home for us and as soon as we were done eating I loaded up and went and upgraded my phone. My IPhone was on its last leg and I was in a desperate need of an upgrade. Once I had that taken care of I ran a few errands then came home and restored all of my settings on my phone. I love electronic gadgets so I've been playing on my phone a lot. 

Saturday Todd went and got donuts for breakfast for the boys. While the boys were eating I did my meal planning for the next two weeks along with making out our grocery list. I normally go to the grocery on Sundays so I can clip coupons but Todd was out of coffee and the man loves his coffee. On the way to the grocery I got a little sidetracked and ran into JCP real fast, I've been talking about this military style jacket that I have been wanting that I saw a couple of weeks ago. I was chatting with mom and decided on a whim to run in. Well I found the jacket and then I needed a shirt to go under the jacket of course so I shopped and it felt like mom was with me since we were on the phone the entire time. I finally made it to the grocery and home about two hours later!   

Once I got home Todd decided he was ready to take the leap and stop smoking. He went and purchased an electric cig that he will gradually take decrease the nicotine. I am so proud of him for taking this step. I love that he doesn't smell like smoke anymore and he is feeling better and can actually breathe! 

The magazine I write for is putting a media kit together and needed head shots of all the contributors. So I recruited the husband to take my picture for me. I took a couple of him to get the lighting and what not the way I wanted it. I didn't know what outfit I wanted so I had two outfit changes. Todd's fave is the one with the red pants. We went to supper that evening and then came home and did nothing. It was a perfect day! 

Sunday was more low key because Todd and I went out on a date that evening. Our sitter couldn't watch the kids Saturday night but could Sunday. We just wanted to get away to run to have a grown up supper then back home. We are pretty simple when it comes to our dates. We decided to try this new place called Villa Ravenna, Oh My Goodness was this stuff awesome! I love Italian food anyway but this was authentic stuff. I ordered a Bellini to drink and loved it and ended up having two of them. Todd and I both had a Caesar salad to eat then he ordered the Osso Buco and loved it. I did taste his Risotto and it was so light and fluffy. I ordered the Tortellini and LOVED it! The pasta was freshly made along with the pesto, tomato, and cream sauce. Then of course we had to have dessert to share so we opted for the Tirmisu. This again was light and full of flavor. This was not one of those dinners where you walk away in a food coma stuffed and feel miserable. I can't wait to go back again!

    Congrats to Todd for attempting to quit smoking. I really hope he is able to do it! When he has successfully overcome the habit he needs to hit my hubby over the head to quit too :)
